Who Is Hillary Clinton?

This blog will follow the presidential Campaign for Hillary Clinton and why you should vote for her!

Hillary Rodham Clinton (born Hillary Diane Rodham on October 26, 1947) is the junior United States Senator from New York. She is married to Bill Clinton, the 42nd President of the United States, and was the First Lady from 1993 to 2001. Before that, she was a lawyer and the First Lady of Arkansas. She is a member of the Democratic Party.

Departing from the traditional role of the First Lady, Clinton was directly involved in policy-making during her husband's presidency. She headed the task force that proposed the Clinton health care plan, which was not enacted by Congress, and initiated the Children's Health Insurance Program and the Adoption and Safe Families Act.

In 2000, Clinton was elected into the United States Senate to succeed Daniel Patrick Moynihan, becoming the only First Lady ever to run for public office and the first female senator to represent New York. She was re-elected in 2006. As senator, she sits on the Committee on Armed Services, the Committee on Environment and Public Works, the Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions and the Special Committee on Aging.

On January 20, 2007, she announced on her campaign website her formation of a presidential exploratory committee for the 2008 presidential election.[

I WILL VOTE FOR HILLARY. Remember why you are a Democrat and you will know this is the right vote. Sensible. I care, I hate greed, I don't want crooks and liars in office, let's look at the problems here at home, bring back the troops, clean up our air, build schools for our kids' kids. Lets take a look at the issues affecting us and make the right move people, its not rocket science. Ignore the bitter right, they cannot win. What would Jesus bomb George? Quit aligning with religious people, you commit ultimate sins you hypocrite! Lets help those who cannot help themselves, be proactive. Teach a man to fish and he will eat forever. Write a blog for Hillary, keep the nasty voices of the right silenced...they are out there, smearing her and any other Democrat. Ignore them and spread the logical, decent views of Democrats. Please.
